The Three Musketeers - One Year Later

 One year ago today I was invited to help out in a new group at the baby orphanage where I met three adorable little boys with Down syndrome who I would later nickname “The Three Musketeers”. At this time last year, Artem, Andrey and Aloysha spent their days in a crowded 5x5 playpen with 3-4 other toddlers, rarely given the opportunity to go outside, never allowed to simply play freely on the floor. At that time, only one of these boys had a family committed to him. Today, two of the boys are home with their forever families and the other has a family on the way.
